Limp Bizkit albums "some sort of sideshow"

Fred Durst, trying to resign himself to being caught forever pretending to be a fourteen year-old boy, tries to spark interest in the new Limp Bizkit album:

"Every time we've made an album it's been so different.

"It's like stepping into a haunted house - you know there's an entrance and an exit door - but you don't know what's inside. It could be fun or it could be spooky."

Well, actually, every time you step into a haunted house you know exactly what you're going to get - some half-arsed attempts at creating an atmosphere on a low budget, which relies on the audience suspending their disbelief and lowering their critical thresholds in order to try and wring some enjoyment out of an entertainment that exists solely to give preteens the sense that they're in some way living on the edge.
